LATERAL SAFE,subproject of the PREVENT Integrated Project, introduces a cluster of safety applications of the future vehicles in order to prevent lateral/rear related accidents and assist the driver in adverse or low visibility conditions and blind spot areas. LATERAL SAFE applications include a lateral and rear monitoring system (LRM), a lane change assistance (LCA) and a lateral collision warning (LCW). An effective Human Machine Interface (HMI) is foreseen in each case to support these applications. For this reason, pilots have been organised in three sites (one in Greece and two in Sweden) to evaluate alternative HMI mock-ups towards the determination of the most adequate for each LATERAL SAFE application.
In this paper, the experimental plan designed for the Greek HMI Pilots, the specific HMI alternatives evaluated as well as the main results arisen will be presented.
